NC243M, Kreutzer K-5 Transport
At left and below is NC243M, a Kreutzer K-5 Transport (S/N
110). It has three Kinner engines of 100 HP each. The location
of the first image is unidentified; of the second, Portland,
OR during 1937. Looking at shadows and the taxiway in front of the
airplane, however, suggests these images were taken at the
same time and place.
